I prefer McIntosh, VMPS, Avalon and JBL myself :)

I desperately want a set of VMPS Lowboys, I have a set of adcom amps sitting waiting.

The only REAL production home amp maker left out there. You have to go boutique to get any better.

I'd love some Classe' or McIntosh amps personally, but alas money constraints. Hmm maybe time to list a completely unrealistic dream system perhaps heehee :-D

Your 301x is a 300watt amp *900 peak yea right, maybe at 19v @ 1khz for .1ms*

The AV-711 is 40 watts per channel.

TBH- Peak isn't valid in the least and even RMS is a real crappy way to rate power output, to get a real idea you need a series of graphs.

Currently I'm running a Yamaha M-60 main, M-30 effects, C-60 pre, DSP-100U DSP, JBL SVA-1600 mains, JBL HLS 620 and JBL HLS 610 effects, 2 Polk PSW110 10" subs, and a JBL PSW-1200 12" sub.
well on the amp itself it says 900W not on a sticker.... the amp. maybe it is 300W rms but i dont care i got it for free and it has enough power to put cracks in my walls (old house) so im happy...

hahaha yea true ;) im not rich either most of the stuff i got for free and sounds fukn good for me and most others.

i dont know how much £60 in AUD but if i was you i would save up for a new receiver and buy some alright bookshelf speakers and then later on you can add a subwoofer, side and center if you want. my 3 way pioneer front speakers have pretty nice bass for what they are.


Thats what i would do. ask niko084 he sounds smart ;)

Yeah some basic pioneer home theater can be really cost efficient. My brother just got himself a low-cost system full 5.1 system with receiver for around AUD $700 and I must say I did not know you could get something like that for the price he paid.

1000W Denon? they may explode lol considering they have only a 400W PEAK power rating lol and for a 1000W Denon, it would be uber expensive if they even exist, so I am going to assume you meant a 100W RMS /channel amp. When I first saw them I thought they were PA speakers and I was like, oh OK but then I read on. From the sounds of it, yeah a 100W Denon will be a nice amp to drive them, whether your teaming them with an actual amp or just a 100W receiver they at least look like they will crank.

so i need atleast 100W rms each channel? if i need that much my yamaha would do, its 100w per channel but not sure if thats rms or peak. (proberbly peak) and if i get the lower ohm version on the cerwin vega's i can use my NAD, manula says lower the ohm the higher Watts it will put out :S

What was the model of your Yammy? Yeah on some amps you can run at some lower ohms just keep an eye or a handle on amp temps. My Cambridge goes to 4 Ohms so your NAD should be able to run them no probs as long as the Cerwin's are definitely at 4 Ohms and not lower for a start and if you wanna run them off the Yammy make sure their suitably matched impedance wise to the Yammy too.

Yamaha HTR-6130, i might just put some fans near the NAD amp and run it off that. right after i posted that last post i went to a hi-fi shop in the city to replace my broken tour beats by dr dre with the studio beats by dr dre (coming thursday, tested there demo pair and soundds F@KIN AWSOME, cant wait to get them) and had a look at a few rotel and denon amps. i would get 1 but at the price of the cerwin vega's theres no way i could afford 1. the Beats cost enough as it is....

Oh nothing against the amp, Rockford still makes decent stuff all considered!
And very solid built sub amps.

All these companies just turned to giving peak power ratings dunno why... :ohwell:

Oh the other note, ya money constraints, tis why I still use solid state equipment, sadly it's cleaner and more powerful than most of the current solid state hifi equipment, and needless to say it cost less than 15% of what the new stuff costs, so what I replace a few capacitors :p

I'm putting Focal speakers and Image Dynamics subs into my 330ci, probably going to use a Nakamichi deck, I have a few MBQuart amps sitting still I might use. Still sitting stock HK for now, which really isn't that bad for a stock system.

tru i wish there was an eayser way to tell which amp is better without actually testing it or listning to the fake specs from audio companies. half the new amps cant even hit the peak power anyway without overheating.... well according mt my friends amps

i recently grabbed an mtx amp for $30 for my brother and it was actually rated by RMS. I went on their site and found the little 400watter could push some of their Jackhammer line.

and for the philips sound system, i got all my consoles connected to a gamestop switcher, which goes to the tv. the tv then has an audio out going to the system. currently i use my pc on the usb connector, but its a basic ac97 audio thing, i plan on getting one of those mini-stereo to rca cables and adding it in with the switch so i still get the quality of my on-board ALC888 which is better than the one built in the stereo.

hehe yea i found all of that more than sufficient for my truck WOG-BOY. In my town the wafflehouse late at night seems to be the gathering place for bassheads... i was in Mcdonald's (next door) and decided to crank mine up. they all turned theirs off after hearing mine... even though they had 2000watt+ systems. Why? b/c theirs all sounded like diesel trucks idleing... all rattle. I took the time to adjust my audio setting and position the boxes in a way to minimize all the rattle (when i installed the system) so you could actually hear the bass and the rest of the songs as well lol. although i'll admit, the truck is all metal so there's still some rattle

and Niko i agree, Rockford still rocks lol. btw those lightning audio speakers at wallyworld are actually a division of Rockford

its not gold plating or anything, but it works well enough for me... played Mass Effect 1 and 2 on my xbox360 with it and audio sounded great. I also stream my movies to my xbox360 from my pc and no audio problems.

It has hookups for,
Red and White Audio
Yellow RCA video, S-Video, RGB RCA
LAN

edit:



the last group where i have teh white in the yellow is my nes... its only mono sound so i just used the white for vid.



Damn pollen is everywhere, no AC so i have to use a window-fan and the pollen is real bad right now

the lan ports aren't used all the time, in other words only one lan device will work at a time, its a manual switch, no power required.

and it is HD, with RGB RCA

and a side note... wallyworld = Wal-Mart lol

edit: the systems currently hooked up



and the nes still works, i replaced the white xbox with the above elite, and the Gamecube is at a friend's house
